Method for debris-flow hazard-assessment by reconstruction of former torrent and debris-flow activity

Reconstructive methods use 'silent witnesses' left by debris-flow events in the past in order to obtain an estimate of hazardous conditions for torrential catchments for which otherwise insufficient preliminary information exist.

Methods for geomorphological and sedimentological mapping as well as for dating of deposits are made available for end-users. An important part of the output of this work is the preparation of guidelines for end-users.
